The California Professor

These are tough times for public higher education in California, and at UC in particular. The faculty do have a voice in the administration of the University, through the Academic Senate and its divisional assemblies, but participation in the Senate proceedings is limited both in the number of faculty involved and the institutional way in which deliberations are achieved and communicated through the UC community. It's time for a more informal venue for faculty to make their voice heard, to elaborate their views, to cut through the fog clouding the budget process or any other issue of interest to the faculty. I will try to post information and analysis on such issues, but please do send me any items of interest. Or, if you would like to collaborate with blog, please do let me know that as well.
